Sugo

Sugo is the restaurant I go to 6 out of 7 nights a week for dinner (it is closed on Mondays) because we get to eat there for free! It is a great deal, they give us coupons for 20 euros for each dinner.

It is a really cool restaurant, mostly outside with a small inside section (unfortunately, tonight they only had room for us inside). Here is what the restaurant looks like outside

They have a lot of good food, but one thing I found interesting is that they don’t serve pasta. The reason is that they are a dinner restaurant, and apparently pasta is more of a lunch food in Italy. Or so they say. Here is the menu

Tonight, dinner was very good. For my first course I ordered the Tavalazzo Sugo per uno (Sugo plate for one). It was basically an assortment of different first course dishes. It had some pesto risotto, fried vegetables, a grape wrapped in prosciutto, some potatoes that were similar to scalloped potatoes, a small piece of eggplant covered in cheese, and a ball of fried cheese. It was very good!

For my main course I had two dishes. One was cannoloni filled with provolone cheese, speck (a smoked ham), and zucchini. The other was a small pizza topped with mozzarella and stracchino cheeses, prosciutto, and arugula. It was also very good, and I washed it all down with a glass of red wine.

I didn’t leave much behind.

No leftovers

 

Tonight I had two very lovely dinner companions. My teammate, Jordan, and his girlfriend, Daniela.

Afterward, we went for some gelato. I got stracciatella and fiodilatte (chocolate chip and vanilla).

 Multo buono!
